Summer Bouquets

July 20th, 2017

The cutting garden is providing a lot of flowers for both our home and for the homes of friends. Every few days I head out and cut annuals and perennials.

The cosmos, dahlias, and cerinthe started blooming last week. There are a few annuals I want to add to the garden next year just for cutting, especially bupleurum.

Along with the annuals I seeded for the vase, a few climbing and spray roses are starting to really start blooming. The speedwell is also really putting on a show this year. But really, it’s the cosmos that are the queens of the bouquet at the moment.

What’s your favorite annual flower to grow for cutting?

    Snapdragons are a favorites annual for cutting; our local nursery has an assortment every year, and when they have a dwarf snapdragon I’ll get extra to plant in our windowboxes.
